    13.5. Request Approval of the Bilingual Stipend for Classified Employees (CSEA/Confidential) for Payment of Services Rendered as per Contractual Obligation During the 2017-18 School Year in the Amount of: $91,530.00 (Consent Item)
    Rationale:

    Staff request approval for payment of (CSEA/Confidential) classified employees to receive the Bilingual Stipend for the 2017-2018 fiscal year totaling at $91,530.00. This payment is contractually obligated (CSEA Contract, Article VIII, Section 8.4) for services rendered for employees within the CSEA union. 

    Approval is recommended as a result of work services having been verifiably rendered. The reason that this item comes before the Board on August 23, 2018 for services provided in 2017-2018, results from the fact that services must be verified prior to payment being issued. As some employees potentially receiving the stipend are 12-month employees, the District must wait until the close of the fiscal year to properly verify services.

    The verification process is extensive:
    (1) managers must submit a signed form certifying via signature that specific employees have been participating in work-related translating during the previous fiscal year and (2) employees must have passed a bilingual/bi-literate exam provided by a statewide testing consortium and locally content validated by subject matter experts, as per EEOC Testing Uniform Guidelines, in order to meet District fluency standards.

    13.6. Request Approval of Classified Personnel Attendance Incentive/Perfect Attendance Stipend Schedule for Classified Employees per the CSEA and SEIU Contracts for the 2017-18 Fiscal Year (Consent Item)
    Rationale:

    Staff requests approval of the attendance incentive/perfect attendance stipend for classified employees for maintaining a minimal absence record (use of two or less sick days per fiscal year) during the 2017-18 school year.

    The implementation steps are as follows:
    (1) an informational correspondence is sent to classified employees along with an application
    (2) employees who wish to be considered for the stipend must return the application by the application  deadline
    (3) a listing is established by Classified Personnel after reviewing the applications
    (4) the listing is audited by Payroll to ensure the days claimed by the employees are officially reflected in the District payroll system

    Employees who do not submit an application by the designated deadline are not considered for the stipend. Furthermore, this stipend only pertains to sick days; use of vacation does not impact receipt of the stipend. 

    This item comes before the Board during the 2018-19 fiscal year for services rendered during the 2017-18 year due to verification procedures, as some employees who apply for consideration are 12-month employees. Thus, the District must wait until the end of the fiscal year to analyze applications and verify accuracy of data.

    14.16. Request Ratification of an Extra Service Agreement with Geotechnical Professionals, Inc. (GPI) for Infiltration Testing Related to CM-045117, Lynwood Middle School Football Field and Track Renovation Project (Consent Item)
    Rationale:

    Staff requests ratification of an extra service agreement with Geotechnical Professionals, Inc. (GPI) to perform infiltration testing associated with CM-045117, Lynwood Middle School track and field renovation project. 

    Geotechnical Professionals, Inc. is currently providing geotechnical observation and testing services for this project. The field infiltration testing is required at the southwest corner of the campus to provide on-site storm water drainage for the football field and track. A utility connection was believed to exist in this area that tied into the county storm drain on Bullis Road. After potholing in this vicinity, the utility connection was not found and the only option is to place a drywell or series of drywells in the grass area located at the southwest corner of the campus. The outcome of the infiltration testing is to characterize and assess the subsurface soils conditions in order to provide a recommendation for the required on-site drainage.

    Staff recommends that the District ratify an extra service agreement with Geotechnical Professionals, Inc. (GPI) to perform infiltration testing. The total fee for the service is based on a not-to-exceed fee of $9,400 which will be paid from Measure K funds.

    14.17. Request Approval of Resolution No. 18-19/02, Entering of an Energy Service Agreement for the Implementation of Phase #2 of the California Energy Commission Approved Energy Expenditure Plan in Conjunction with the California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Consent Item)
    Rationale:

    Staff requests approval of Resolution No. 18-19/02, entering of an energy service agreement for the implementation of Phase #2 of the California Energy Commission approved Energy Expenditure Plan in conjunction with the California Clean Energy Jobs Act.

    Proposition 39, the California Clean Energy Jobs Act, provides school districts with additional funding for five years to install energy conservation measures. Subsequently, the District conducted a Request for Qualification process and selected Ameresco as the energy services partner in the development and implementation of the Energy Expenditure Plan (EEP). The EEP was submitted and approved by the California Energy Commission in 2014.

    The projects in the approved EEP include the upgrade of exterior and interior lighting systems at various sites. The projects are separated into two phases. Phase #1 was completed in 2014-15 school year, which included Lindbergh ES, Will Rogers ES and the District Office. Phase #2 includes Marshall ES, Lugo ES, Roosevelt ES and Mark Twain ES.

    Upon completion of Phase #2 projects, the District shall realize a savings of approximately $140,000 a year in reduced electricity and supplies. The total construction cost is $1,742,087, of which, $1,529,089 is funded by Prop 39. The remaining difference of $212,998 will be funded by Measure K, using part of the $1.5 million Emergency Repairs Program reimbursement.

    14.18. Request Approval of Resolution No. 18-19/03, Authorizing a Request for Waiver from the State Board of Education Relative to Statutory General Obligation Bond Debt Limitations as Provided by Sections 15102 and 15268 of the Education Code (Consent Item)
    Rationale:

    Staff recommends the approval of Resolution 18-19/03, authorizing a request for waiver from the State Board of Education relative to statutory General Obligation Bond debt limitations as provided by Sections 15102 and 15268 of the Education Code.

    California Education Code Section 33050 (the "Waiver Law") authorizes the governing board of school districts to request the State Board of Education (the "SBE") to waive all or part of any statutory requirements of the Education Code, except for those provisions which the Waiver Law exempts from waiver.  

    Elections were held in the Lynwood Unified School District (the "District") on November 6, 2012 and November 8, 2016 (the "Measures") for the issuance and sale of general obligation bonds of the District. In order to issue bonds under the Measures, the District will require a waiver of a statutory provision which limits the total amount of bonds that can be issued by the District to 2.50% of its current assessed valuation.  The resolution before the Board would authorize the filing of a waiver request under the Waiver Law for such purpose. The resolution would authorize District staff to complete all necessary documentation and take any additional actions required by the SBE in order to facilitate the approval of the waiver request. 

    The District is required by the Waiver Law to hold a public hearing prior to the adoption of the resolution. A public hearing regarding the waiver has been scheduled for August 23, 2018, at which members of the public may be heard. The resolution will be adopted at the conclusion of the hearing.
